Everyone is welcome.

Last year the senator's district staff traveled to 20 towns and met with hundreds of local officials and residents in Adams, Alford, Blandford, Charlemont, Chester, Cummington, Heath, Lanesborough, Lee, Lenox, Middlefield, Monroe, New Marlborough, Peru, Plainfield, Rowe, Washington, Windsor, Westhampton, and West Stockbridge while Senator Hinds has participated in public forums throughout the Senate District.
 
Those who are unable to attend these events who are seeking to interact with the senator and his staff may email him at Adam.Hinds@masenate.gov or call the offices during normal business hours, Monday through Friday. The State House office, where the budget and policy, media relations, and scheduling functions are handled, can be reached at 617-722-1625.

Price Rite Marketplace Shows Off Remodel to Happy Customers

By Jeff SnoonianiBerkshires Correspondent

Hugh Black of Pittsfield braved the cold temperatures to be at the reopening.
 

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — A brighter, redesigned, upgraded Price Rite Marketplace opened Friday morning on Dalton Avenue.

The 25-year-old grocery chain is rebranding all of its Massachusetts locations with a goal of an improved customer experience.

People were lined up before 7 a.m. for the 8 o'clock opening. The temperature was a seasonable 15 degrees so there was a fair amount of foot shuffling and blowing into hands. By 7:30, the number grew to several dozen and by the time 8 o'clock neared, it was close to 200 and stretched right around the perimeter of the parking lot.

The first 400 customers received a $20 gift card. They ran out within the first 45 minutes.
